Motor vehicles have a brief but intense history behind them. First built as a mean of transport, they have become collector’s items. Since the first models were put on the market about a hundred years ago, cars and motorbikes have become objects of prestige mainly thanks to important sport competitions and the creative skills of the designers and engineers. These books describe the most significant people and vehicles in the century of motoring, those that have left a mark in the collective imagination. From a dream to the drawing road and to the reality on the road, these pages show what magnificent results can be obtained from the union of technology, art, beauty and adventure.
